California Legislative Update: Conflict of Interest Legislation
Here’s your California legislative update! We try to do our best to make sure you have the most up-to-date information on what pieces of California legislation may affect charter schools.
SB 126 (charter school conflict of interest provisions) is currently speeding through the legislature. The measure passed the State Senate this week and will pass through the State Assembly next week. Then it will head to the Governor for his signature and he will sign the measure. The administration has been very clear that the Governor made a commitment to charter school transparency during his campaign and SB 126 fulfills that commitment.
The measure would apply Government Code 1090, the Brown Act, Public Records Act and the Political Reform Act to charter schools and entities managing charter schools. This is moving faster than anyone anticipated but will impact all charter schools in the State.
